If you are an employer looking for help recruiting in the Bristol area


Ways2Work is a free service to support employers to recruit staff. We specialise in working with employers recruiting entry-level and second-level staff from people who are seeking work in the Bristol area. We work closely with the Department for Work and Pensions, colleges, training providers and the back-to-work sector in Bristol and the West of England area. This maximises opportunities for employers to recruit from the widest possible pool of potential employees.

We can offer you space at jobs fairs, networking opportunities and connections with training providers who can get you candidates with the skills you need to succeed.

We are not a recruitment agency as we do not supply staff. What we can do is to ensure that your vacancy information is spread through our extensive network of contacts working directly with people looking for work.

We're still working so that you can too!

Although our activity has changed to adapt to socially distanced and online work, we are still running jobs fairs and network meetings online. Please get in touch if you think we can help you.

Advertise Vacancies

Email details of your job vacancies or recruitment campaign to ways2work@bristol.gov.uk and we'll circulate to our email network and share on our jobs board and social media at no cost to you.

Come to a Jobs Fair

Our jobs fairs are now online events. You are still able to connect with jobseekers over the phone, on social media or on a video call. Contact us to find out more about our next event.

Speak at a Network Meeting

Our Ways2Work network meetings are for employment support professionals to find the best opportunities for their clients. Email to book a place or find out more.
